Air Fresheners?

It seems wherever I go these days whether it be offices, homes, cars, or stores, the air smells sweet and full of perfume. If you are one of the people who thinks you are 'freshening' your air with these products, think again. These products contain formaldehyde, petroleum distillate, dichlorobenzene and aerosol propellants. There are twenty volatile organic compounds in these products and according to federal laws at least one-third of these chemicals are labeled toxic.  

Keep in mind that toxic chemicals are carcinogens meaning they cause cancer. It is not surprising to me through my research why so many people are suffering from cancer. Formaldahyde is a neurotoxin. If you look at that chemical alone it has a dangerous effect on the brain. If you feel brain fog, dizzy, nauseous or other feelings don't rush to the doctor until you clear your breathing environment of these so called air 'fresheners' because they really are air toxicities.

Please check out the ingredients on these products. The word perfume alone includes 400 to 800 chemicals. A huge proportion of these cause cancer. 

If you are a pregnant woman, you pass these chemicals on to your infant child through the placenta. It is time we awaken to what companies are putting in our air and getting rich making us sick.

Be healthy,
Jan
